On the Mend.

Today is the end of week 3, and my foot is getting better.   I can finally put weight on it without feeling pain, but still have discomfort with some tendons on the top left of foot.  I finally gave in and listened to my podiatrist and put my foot in a boot for 3 days, which did help.   I attempted to run twice in the 3 weeks which was a foolish idea.  I usually run through injuries, but having a foot injury is a different story.    Basically i strained the tendons in my foot and around my ankle,  my foot really started to hurt during my NYC Barefoot run.

I can’t really pin point when this injury happened, strains are a gradual injury and they are tough to determine when it exactly happened, but I think I have good idea when I did it.  I am sure it happened when I was messing around with my older son in the back yard jumping over lawn furniture, and off the picnic table.  I think it’s time to give up lawn furniture jumping,  I’m 40 not 20.

Anyways being out of commission for this long is new territory for me.  I was cranky, angry, and depressed at times.  I think the psychological aspects is more difficult to handle than the actually injury.  I learned allot from this injury, mainly just to appreciate running in its simplistic form.   It’s a beautiful fall morning right now, and a perfect day for a run,  I might test out the foot and see what happens, if it’s a no go I will not push it.

First snow of the season. My son and I at the finish of the 5 mile Turkey Trot Rusty as a bag of nails, but it’s a good outlet. 5 mile Turkey Trot tradition. 20+ years running this race with my sister. My son made his debut today, fantastic job! Deadlifts. This was my last set of 225lbs, a new PR.
135 x 10 warm up
185 x 6
195 x 7
205 x 6
225 x 5

Had my son Andrew @parkor_boy23 filming and working out with me as well. Finally Optimal Nutrition comes out with a plant based protein.  Most protein powder has a lot of garbage in it, artificial flavors, gluten, dextrin, soy etc. which I try to avoid. I’m not a Vegan/Vegetarian but like a clean supplement. The taste is spot on. Not grainy or “earthy” tasting.  Very happy with this.
#optimumnutrition First cold barefoot run of the season. 25F and the sun was shining, felt good.
#barefootrunning 5am Workout.
I don’t have heat In my garage it was a crisp 32 degrees, but don’t mind.  Some benefits of having a home gym is no travel time, no people, and you can wear your comfies.
This was my last set of benching at 170lbs Fall fun.
